Cle Elum Wedding at Dragonwood // Aris + James Henry

Yellow, Blue and Camo Wedding

Rhiann and Haley photographed this wedding at Dragonwood Equine Facility in Cle Elum on June 24th. This day was a beautiful example of how helpful and important family can be! The Bride and Groom had many of their friends and family assist in making their day just as they dreamed. These two high school sweethearts, Aris and James, have been together for eight and a half years! The wedding colors were Tiffany blue, yellow, and camo. You can take a guess at one of their hobbies as a couple...hunting! Aris was a gorgeous Bride in her stunning dress from Alfred Angelo. Natalie DeHaven Cakes provided a delicious cake for the evening!

The bridesmaids consisted of Montessa, who was her sister and maid of honor, Taylor, Britni, Fabiana, Kristina, Makenna, and Katie. James chose his brother, Steve, as his best man. Connor, Chad, Ben, Josh, Jonathon, and Kory joined as his groomsmen. Hanging out with the bridal party was a blast! Aris and James - Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day. We had a great time getting to know you both! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Henry!

Naches Wedding at American Homestead // Andrea + Stephen King

Pink and Mint Wedding

Lachelle and Keith photographed this wedding at American Homestead on June 24th. The whole day was abounding with love exemplified from the family and friends gathered to see the two become one. Andrea and Stephen were joined by their children, Aidan and Morgan. Between sharing vows they wrote for each child, and having special dances with the children, this was an unforgettable wedding.

Andrea and Stephen were such a joy to spend the day alongside. We loved getting to know the two on a personal level. Stephen is an accomplished pianist and organist. His love was very apparent for Andrea. It stood out most when we found out he recorded a version of him playing "A Dream is a Wish" for the bridal party to walk down to. But wait - it gets better! He actually wrote and played the song Andrea walked down the aisle to and named it, "The Queens Procession". Of course with the Groom being as committed as he was, the Bride was just as well. The dedicated Bride held more than one major role! She was the coordinator, planner, and florist! The paper flowers intertwined within the centerpieces were handcrafted out of the grooms old sheet music. Guys...this couple really knew how to be sentimental. We loved it!

The Bride's mother gave her a six pence for her shoe that she had been holding onto since the bride was 2 years old. We were also informed that the Bride's cousin made the bridesmaids jewelry. Including family in anyway throughout the wedding planning is such a beautiful way to show them you care, and treasure their impact on your life.

Yes this wedding was full of affectionate details, but the family also knew how to have fun! Half way through the reception Andrea wanted to run down to the river and do a "trash the dress" session. This was way too much fun! A whole crowd of guests followed us down. Keith was standing on a rock in the middle of the river in order to capture the moment perfectly. He managed to walk away without any water on his shoes (or camera!). The bride on the other hand was completely soaked. Stephen gave into pure pressure and joined her. Pretty soon the bridal party was in the river. Thankfully it had been hot that day, so it didn't seem to be too bad...!

I think it is safe to say this couple was a blast to work with. We loved seeing how they connected with their guests, and their willingness to try new ideas. Aidan and Morgan are lucky to have such fun parents! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. King!

Yakima Wedding at Hackett Ranch // Jennifer + Julio Casana

Grey, White and Green Wedding

If I could use three words to describe this wedding it would be love, experience, and atmosphere. At the risk of sounding cliche, this wedding felt like it was straight out of a movie. Breathtaking scenery, a couple very much in love, surrounded by SO much encouragement and happiness from guests. Everything throughout the whole day was a seamless experience. The bridesmaids had a relaxing time getting ready at Belu salon. We had a fun and memorable time taking photos with the couple at Hackett Ranch. Entertaining ceremony by Dave Ettl. And I tell you what, the Gormans know how to throw the BEST party! The reception was hopping and everyone really enjoyed themselves. There were a lot of guests who traveled from out of town to be at this wedding so it was a great reunion as well.

Via at the Hackett Ranch along with Jocelyn Larsen and her team with Buttercream and Co. were so helpful with keeping all the wedding details together and making everything perfect for this couple. Not to mention the florist Litzy's Bridal, the amazing crew at Cowiche Canyon, and the infamous Micah Cawley as the DJ. Cowiche Canyon catered the meal family style and it was AMAZING! Up there with one of the best wedding meals I've ever had... and that's saying a lot because we've been to hundreds of weddings in the past 10 years :) Warm summer air, laughter, and spirits made for an unforgettable night for this couple! Congratulations Julio and Jennifer....we are so excited for you two!
